  1. Casey Matter

    I get one every year!

  2. Jessica

    We love these! Exploring breweries together and it all goes to a great case! We get one every time now 🙂

  3. Torey

    Such an amazing deal that allows you and your dog to explore the city together. 10/10 would recommend ☺️

  4. Rich Burns

    Crazy value and an excellent excuse to drink beer with your dog.

  5. Sabra Zahn

    Although we are actively shamed for not having a pupster. . . .
    We loved the program last year; it’s a great deal, supporting a great cause, and it nudged us to visit more local breweries.

  6. Sarah M. Halby

    Love this! Has the winter brewery pass expiration date been extended past May given the most recent situation?

    • Andrea Lahouze

      Thanks for your note, Sarah! Because the expiration is physically printed on the Pass that was printed last September, we can’t really change the date. And since breweries are closed with unknown reopen dates, we can’t coordinate with them on this unforeseen circumstance.

      However, we are extending the expiration for our Summer Dog-Friendly Brewery Pass to 12/31 (typically it has been 10/31). It’s a really tough time for our small businesses, and we so appreciate you buying our Brewery Passes! If you’re not subscribed yet, please sign up fur our newsletter to know the moment our Summer Pass presale starts.

  7. Brook Lemm-Tabor

    These are such fun to use and share with friends. Get a couple every year. Thanks to Sidewalk Dog and the many participating breweries and restaurants that take part in this great deal.

  8. Michelle Ryan

    We love these passes, this is our 3rd pass, some of the breweries are open for crowlers, so we have been going to them 1x week like our old date night was. All the breweries that are doing curb side still need our business and support. Some are even making hand sanitizer which is great being I work in a group home so I supported that venture as well.

  9. cindy

    Love the pass. Buy it every year, and 2 for our pals in St. Paul. One issue…..some breweries set aside certain brews not available with the pass. We found at one brewery that the only beers allowed were pretty plain jane. But will continue to purchase pass. WE love checking out the local brews and food trucks. Hope this covid stuff ends soon.

  10. Samantha (verified owner)

    Great gift! Too bad it couldn’t be used as a x-mas gift since it expires at the end of the year. Would have been better to sell 2021 passes this late in the year. But we’ll still use it a couple of times.

    • Stephanie Figy

      Hi Samantha, Thanks for your feedback! We would normally have a Winter Pass, but heckin’ COVID has thrown us all for a loop. Enjoy & stay safe!

  11. Lindsey (verified owner)

    We love the pass and supporting all of our local dog-friendly breweries! The map function on the website for previous passes was great for planning and hope you bring that back!

    • Casey Matter

      Your wish is our dog-lovin’ command! Here’s the interactive map (also linked above in FAQs). Thanks so mutts for your purchase!

  12. Lauren

    We LOVE Sidewalk Dog’s yearly brewery pass! It’s been awesome to try out some different places that we hadn’t heard of before and also give back to the rescue organization that they work with each year! Couldn’t recommend it more!
